Tinsel James

I want to share with you my last card for the Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge. Their theme this month was anything goes and to be eligible for a prize you must create at least 5 cards. 

For my card this time, I have chosen to work with this stamp James wrapped in Tinsel from LOTV. I got these stamps just before Christmas and did not have a chance to put them to use this past season but I am betting they will be prominently featured for 2011.

James has been coloured in Copics and then I have used some glossy accents on the ornaments to give them a bit of dimension and shine. The tinsel has been done using the Martha Stewart tinsel glitter, I just love the look of this stuff.

This card was put together using scraps of paper that were left over from last years cards. I seem to be finding that the easiest way to tidy up my desk is to use it up. I have kept the card simple using only some nesties and punches for interest to keep it flat for mailing. My biggest problem last year was that I did not have enough flat cards that could be mailed so that is what I will be working on this year.

I want to thank you for stopping by, I hope that you are having a great weekend and I will see you again tomorrow for the next StampFairy Challenge.

This card will also be entered into the Simon Says Stamp challenge for this week which is Animal Antics.
